Default Thoughts on two rejections

Every time I get a rejection I think of that Capitol One card commercial with that mid evil guy that says REJECTED!!!

I am of course saying that in jest

OK I was going through some older stuff and came up with this


Now I got rejected for horizon un level and then fixed that (so I thought) and got rejected again. Which way should I try to turn it?

Got dinged on cropping on this one:


Any thoughts, ideas, etc always appreciated.

Both look like they should be turned Counterclockwise.

Part of the problem with the second shot is that there's little room in front of the locomotive.

Shot number one could maybe use a tad of CCW rotation, based on the telephone poles in the background. At the same time, you might include a note to make sure the screener isn't being fooled by the fact that the train is going downgrade a bit.

As for the second one, it seems to me that the lead loco is a bit too close to the edge of the frame, although they could also have dinged you for composition/balance because the train is perfectly centered in the photo, so maybe it's really a rule of thirds issue.
